Over the last 45 years Elite has sent girls off to be successful at many schools for gymnastics -Auburn, MIT, Missouri, Georgia, Arizona, KU, and Southeast Missouri State to name a few!

While competing college gymnastics is an incredible accomplishment, it is not the only future benefit to competitive gymnastics. Many of our gymnasts have gone on to compete collegiate sports in other areas such as pole vault, diving, and competitive cheer - all made possible by their background in gymnastics. We are proud of all our former athletes and continue to do everything we can to help our current gymnasts reach their goals - whatever they may be!
